Pangaia, a materials science company focused on creating materials that aims to reduce tehir impact on the environment, has launched Activewear 3.0, a new and improved range of plant-based activewear.
The new Pangaia’s activewear line is what the brand considers its most bio-based offering to date, as it is made using 99.99% plant-based EVO Nylon and 30% plant-based Creora elastane. This new stretch fiber is the first commercially available of its kind, and it was developed by Hyosung, a global specialized fiber manufacturer that produces a very wide selection of Creora stretch fiber offerings, Mipan nylon and specialty polyester, along with a selection of sustainable fiber solutions.
The yarn is SGS certified, guaranteeing that it is made with plant-based materials and produced in an eco-friendly environment. According to a recent third-party LCA, the manufacture of Creora bio-based elastane reduces its carbon footprint by 23% as compared to the production of regular elastane.
The new selection of Pangaia’s activewear includes four styles–a bra, a cropped top, shorts, and leggings–in three colorways–black, foliage green, and cerulean blue. All the pieces are seamless and designed to feel like a second skin added with gentle compression. Additionally, each garment is treated with the brand’s “Pprmint” finish, so garments stay fresh for longer.
Pangaia’s Activewear 3.0 is sold online at Pangaia.com.
